Actually, the quote it brought to my mind was:

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result".
Albert Einstein

We will never, never forget, as a nation, that innocents were slaughtered in the name of politically-driven "religion" allowed to fester in its hatred. I will never stop fighting those who would steal from us our hope and our lives for the sake of political power. I cannot bring myself forgive the Clintons for their part in this. The blood is on their hands.

May we Never forget! I send my love and prayers to all of the families who lost a loved one on 9/11 and who continue to fight this evil cancer. May God protect this Great Nation from the evil that attacked us and may God protect Israel.

I still have the USA today from Sep. 12th sitting on my desk as a reminder, with the full page picture of one of the planes hitting the WTC. I haven't moved it in two years. I left the Pentagon about 10 minutes before the plane hit and didn't know what happened until I got back to my office. My office is near Dulles airport in Wash. DC and I remember how everyone reacted when a plane would fly over our bldg. as they tried to get them all on the ground. Then there was silence. I got used to hearing planes fly over about every five minutes. Except for the sound of the F-16's overhead, it was silent. May God show no mercy on those terrorist bastards and their evil religion!

Although there was a memorial service for Barbara Olson in the DC area, she's buried in a small cemetery in northern Door County. Ted Olson's family is from there, and she and Ted would spend their summers at their cottage in Door County. She loved the area so much that when she was asked to be a commentator on TV, she'd make them come to where she was, rather than leave the cottage and go to a studio in Green Bay.

Thinking about Barbara and the rest of the victims of 9/11 makes me tear up. My heart is so heavy today.

I hadn't known that about Barbara. Thank you for personalizing her even more.

My heart grieves for those families who lost a loved.

Thankfully, my heart also soars when I remember the bravery of our soldiers and the wisdom of our administration.

Today is my birthday as well. It's a sick day to celebrate another year of life when so many lost theirs. What upsets me the most is seeing their pictures. Their faces are all so pretty with the best smiles possible. They all look so happy.

I think today is Ted Olson's birthday as well. Isn't that why Barbara stayed a day later? I think she wanted to be with him on this day two years ago for breakfast.

~Blessings~

Yup, right about then, two years ago, I called my dad on the phone saying, "Hey, turn on the phone. You gotta see this." Then we both watched together as we saw the second strike. Unforgettable.

Happy Birthday Ted.

"That night, a grieving Olson was surrounded by friends and family at the couple’s home in Great Falls, Va. When he finally went upstairs to bed, he found something that Barbara had left him that morning on his pillow. It was a note wishing him a Happy Birthday. It was Olson’s 61st."

It does seem that time is putting out the fire in the belly of America! Less footage of the planes crashing, less footage of the Pentagon attack, etc. It is pathetic the way the Democrats banded together with the Bush administration that day to denounce terriorism and now look at them!!! They have selfishly abondoned the fight!

I don't know what the weather is like in NY, but where I live the weather is just like that day - sunny, cool, high clouds.

Hard to believe how much our world has changed and those families who were about to lose a loved one forever.

The Saud's are a large royal family. Each man has four wives, their son's have four wives, and they all have children, with their wives and without their wives. These people, the uncles, the brothers, the children are all competing for the "family money" and power within the family. To understand this ugly mess, think angry relatives at the reading of a will and the division of "Dad's company".

Do we want to topple the part of the family that backs us? What do you think we should do?

The Saudis financed/planned/encouraged the 911 atrocities. Nothing has happened -- except they financed more.

Watching the WTC ceremony, I thought the weather looked EXACTLY like that day.

May we find ourselves safer today than we were that day.

First resumed flight

"We, the American People… find ourselves in the peaceful possession, of the fairest portion of the earth, as regards extent of territory, fertility of soil, and salubrity of climate. We find ourselves under the government of a system of political institutions, conducing more essentially to the ends of civil and religious liberty, than any of which the history of former times tells us…We toiled not in the acquirement or establishment of them--they are a legacy bequeathed us, by a once hardy, brave, and patriotic, but now lamented and departed race of ancestors. Theirs was the task (and nobly they performed it) to possess themselves, and through themselves, us, of this goodly land; and to uprear upon its hills and its valleys, a political edifice of liberty and equal rights; 'tis ours only, to transmit these, the former, unprofaned by the foot of an invader…to the latest generation that fate shall permit the world to know. This gratitude to our fathers, justice to ourselves, duty to posterity, and love for our species in general, all imperatively require us faithfully to perform."

"How then shall we perform it?--At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?-- Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!--All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." -- Abraham Lincoln

And BKO's calls to Ted probably gave away some of the motus operandi of the terrorists so that the folks in Pennsylvania could know to rush the cabin. ( and saving the Capitol Building)

You cant keep a good freeper from acting to save his/her country!

The damage from an attack on the Capitol could have taken out a good portion of the Congressional body

I'm just a couple hours' north of you... you're right, it IS the same beautiful weather as 9/11/01. If I remember correctly, 9/11/02 was like this also.

I understand the need to remember what happened, but most of these rememberances are exercises in self-pity and harken back to the Clintonian, "I feel your pain." Enough with the yellow ribbons and eternal flames. We should be angry and armed with a steely reserve and determination to get these bastards. Just as Remember Pearl Harbor and Remember the Alamo spured us on, so should Remember 9/11.
